ANNIVERSARY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I thought it was very wonderful and worth putting on my blog.

Today I have an Anniversary card I made for my Son and Daughter in Law who celebrated their 20th Anniversary recently.


This is an easel card I made for them.
Card stock and image both Hunkydory again.
Renforced the base with extra card stock so it wasn't floppy.
This fits into and 8"x8" size envelope.
Used Sue Wilson's Hexagon Stiched Die to cut the shape.
Doily is Tattered Lace.
Ticket Die is also Tattered Lace.
The Heart Die is Crafters Companion.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A COUPLE OF STAMPED CARDS


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Anyone getting stir crazy yet ?
I have always been fine with my own company so I am okay just hope everyone is keeping safe at the moment.

Today I have a couple of stamped cards I made a few weeks ago when I treated myself to Sheena's stamps after seeing her demos on C&C.
I am not good designing stamped cards for some reason I seem to have mental block about it.





These are both A5 in size.
First one is a tent fold.
I stamped the bird house in Archival black ink and coloured it with distress inks and water.
The second one I decided to keep all one colour.
I did spritz these with Crafters Companion Sparkle Clear Pens, but it doesn't show up in the photos sadly.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time.
I love your visits, and wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE.....DT.........MARCH 2020


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do so hope everyone is fit and well, and are not suffering with this dreadful virus.
Good job us crafty people have our crafts to help us pass the time.

It's the 25th of the month and time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 
SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 
The challenge runs to the end of the month.
As always anything goes as long as it's Christmas .
ONE ENTY PER PERSON.
Maureen always has a lovely prize on offer, and you get your Christmas cards made throughout the year. 

For my DT this month I made 2 cards back in January ready for this month.

  


These are 6"x6" size cards.
Decided to go Shabby Chic with my designs this time around. 
I suppose with all the layers they could be called Mixed Media too.
I used lots of white texture paste on them both and on the 2nd one I also added Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter to the top.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment made.

POP UP BOX FOR MY NIECE


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do do hope everyone is safe and well keep your chins up everyone, and keep crafting it helps.
Sending lots of love to those of you who may not be well with this or anything else.

Today I have a pop up box I made for my Niece to go with her Birthday card.


I used Hunkydory card stock again, and lots of snippets of card left over from the Birthday card I made in my previous post.
  The 50 dies, and the pansies were also snippets left over too.
I also used snippets to line the flaps of the pop up box.
This all folds flat nicely into an A4 envelope.
Will join my playmates over at the Pixies Snippets Playground with this.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.

50th BIRTHDAY CARD AND BOX


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do so hope you are all keeping well, and haven't come in contact with this awful virus.

I know I have been missing a lot lately, but I won't bore you with my health troubles.
I am still crafting when I can as I find it helps me.

Today I have a card and box I recently made for my Niece.




This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
My Niece loves Purple and Lilac colours so I used Hunkydory Garden Treasures paper pad for the background and some of their die cut flowers.
In fact all of the card used is Hunky dory card stock.
The pocket dies used are Tonic, the sentiment is Sue Wilson's die.
Number dies bought on Amazon.
I always cut my sentiment dies and number dies in old cereal boxes  first so I don't have to cut them out 4 or 5 times in thinner card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

 Anything But A Card 
So I thought I would make a Tissue Box for my DT work.



The images used are Hunkydory a free set with Hunkydory membership you just pay the postage.
I really loved the gorgeous Hare and the art work.
I used a combo of Hobby House pearls and Tonic Nuvo Pearl Drops on the top of the box.
The lovely lace came from the Works back last year.
I make these Tissue Box Bases from the left over Box Board I use for my 8"x8" size Boxes I make for special cards so I think it can be classed as  Snippets so I will be joining the Pixies Snippets Playground with this.
